I Just Got My First Commission!

I just got my first ever online commission!!!!

I'm a jumble of emotion. What should I do?

I think I need to contact them and ask if they have any questions. I didn't even sell them directly I'm not sure how they got my link? I'm guess through a facebook page I made.

I'm so excited! It really makes me feel like fb advertising might be the best way to go for me.

      I think it is possible they could ask for a refund, but i've emailed them that I will help them and hope they can put it to good use.

    When you mean your first commission, I take it that it's an affiliate commission. If so, no. I wouldn't bother them. If they have questions about a refund or any support, it's the product creator/vendor who can do this. Just enjoy the commission. Also, depending on where you got the product from, for example, Clickbank, they will hold the commissions for this reason, so if the customer claims a refund, you'll lose that commission.

    Another great way to track your affiliate links to know where they're coming from is to use a link shortening service such as bit.ly. Give the link a name and then you'll know where it's coming from. As it's very important this I personally find, so that you can duplicate your success, and implement on that strategy.

    I hope this has helped.

      Good analogy. Tracking is very important. If something works, then you can work upon that method. And if one doesn't, well, we know what to do with that

    Congrats, Andrew! Would you mind sharing with us, how were you able to get it. Perhaps, share what niche, how long was the campaign and what strategy were used. It might help for some who just started affiliate marketing. Thanks.

      I'm no expert, but whatever you are promoting create a facbook page for it. fill it with picutures and vids supplied by the product if possible and post daily on it, and run $5 to $20 a week on ads to get started. It's all about targeting in the ads. You need to figure out the people who are most likley to benefit from your product and then make sure you set that all up correctly when making your ads.

    Well done! It's a great feeling.

    This shows the power of Facebook traffic.
    You mentioned Fb ads.
    Don't forget Fb fan pages as well.

      yes i ran an ad on a page I created for the app and I think that's what did it! I just looked at my bitly link and i had 21 clicks yesterday. I'm just sure that's where it came from!

    i came across this tool
    You mean - that 'tool' with your affiliate link attached to it?

    Do you expect people to buy from someone spamming a forum?
    What led you to believe people on this forum are that stupid?

    Congrats on that first sale.. I remember that feeling, way back in the day, when people sent money in the "mail" checks to be exact, for what I was selling on my website.

    Back then not everyone was selling something on the web but getting sales was exciting.

    Listen, not trying to rain on your parade here at all but I wouldn't go overboard sending personal emails to everyone or sale you get asking to help. Don't spread yourself too thin and being too eager could potentially scare someone off.

    If it's your product just be sure to make yourself known and how you can be reached and that you support their decision and to reach out if they need assistance.

    If an affiliate product and you're not sending them to an opt-in page of your own first, which you should be doing by the way to build your list, you could then offer an unadvertised bonus along with your follow up message and support info as well.

    Congrats and never let go of that WIN FEELING it can help keep you inspired and motivated.

    First of all, I like to say congratulations and then well done!

    Keep up the good work.

    Yes, you can run FB ads for as little as $5 USD daily if you know what you are doing.

    Though there are other methods of getting more traffic and sales as well.

    Congratulations for your first achievement. I can imagine how it feels when we got first money in Internet. May be it $5 or $10 it does not matter. But be calm and hold your emotions and dont over pay to false products. At this time we many do the samemistake to put many more to get more sells but put in the wrong areas. Yes i also recommend fb ad is the best.
